Facts about Knee Pain in Bergen County: Possible Causes of Injury

Athletes and health buffs in New Jersey’s most populous county aren’t the only ones at risk of developing knee pain sometime throughout their lives. To identify the possible cause of the condition, doctors typically look into different factors like overall health, hereditary conditions, predisposition to injury, and others. So, what exactly are the major causes of knee pain for Bergen County residents?


Injuries like ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) or meniscus tears could cause horrible cases of knee pain in patients. ACL injuries are caused by tears in the joints connecting the shinbone to the thighbone, and meniscus injuries stem from suddenly twisting your knee while you’re carrying something heavy, tearing up your legs’ natural shock absorbers.
